Gesture unites generations


It was all smiles at the Lawrence Rural Health Centre rest-home recently as Lawrence Area School (LAS) head girl and Clutha District Youth Council member Amy Eason organised a morning tea for the home’s residents.

“All the food was made by kids from the school,” Amy said.

There were scones, BLTs, egg and ham sandwiches, pikelets with whipped cream and more.

A whole group of LAS pupils of different ages came along to spend time with the older members of their community.

“We just thought it would be a nice way to give back to the community, and for the different generations to get together.”
